of characters in the scandal that brought down the c.i.a. director general petraeus is growing. it now involves the commander of u.s. forces in afghanistan, the general john allen who took over the job when general petraeus left it to run the c.i.a. now officials say general allen's nomination to become the supreme allied commander in europe is on "hold" while potentially inappropriate e-mails are being checked out, and her name is jill kelley, a friend of the petraeus family and triggered the original f.b.i. investigation that revealed the director was cheating on his wife. she contacted an at she knew, shirtless agent, claiming to have received anonymous threatening e-mails tells her to stay away from general petraeus. it is unclear but the f.b.i. found reason to open an investigation. investigators determined that the e-mails were from general's biographer paula broad wall and she and general petraeus had an fair and neither had done anything criminal but reason that are inexplicable at this moment, there is more after thousands and thousands of e-mails were discovered thousands and thousand
the scandal that's led to david petraeus resigning from the cia. that's certainly not the first sex scandal to bring down someone in washington, it certainly won't be the last. but tonight there are growing questions about the timing of how the word got out, whether more people in the government should have been told or been told sooner that the fbi was investigating a case involving the director of the cia. we're keeping them honest as we do every night not to take sides, you can get that on other cable news channels, but to look for the truth, the facts. here's what we know right now about who knew what and when. according to "wall street journal" the fbi discovered the affair between petraeus and his biographer, paula broadwell, in late summer. we'll have more on how in just a moment. so the fbi reportedly knew in late summer that the head of the cia was having an affair, but it wasn't until months later after election day that president obama found out, and the house and senate intelligence committees didn't find out until friday. congressional leaders from both parties are angry, they
at the cia. in may this year a government official says broadwell began sending threatening e-mails to jill kelley. she's described as a family friend. petraeus. she lives in tampa but was being warned to stay away. kelley shared her concerns over the threatening nature of the e-mails with that friend at the fbi and that's what prompted this entire investigation. but sometime around july, if we're going to talk about a time frame, we know that according to petraeus' friend, the affair ended and sources are telling cnn petraeus indicated broadwell might be obsessed with him and may have felt she was warding off the competition or something of that sort by sending these e-mails to kelley. >> quite extraordinary details are merging. barbara, if it turns out that this fbi agent was the catalyst for all this, and in fact, almost by default because he had been caught himself behaving improperly, the suggestion then becomes that this fbi investigation was sort of so hack-handed that petraeus was almost brought down by accident, that it should never really have happened. >> that is what people are
